7:01 am
for the win. the mvp taking one for his team leading the golden state warriors to victory plus the no-look shot of the night everyone is talking about this morning. and good morning, america. we want to get right to that breaking news. an egyptair flight heading from paris to cairo disappeared overnight, 66 people on board. the radar shows it over the mediterranean after it entered egyptian airspace. you're looking live at the airport in cairo where it was headed. passengers' families gathering there. >> it is an airbus a320 with 56 passengers, ten crew members on board. it departed charles de gaulle airport in paris at 11:09 p.m. local time and officials lost contact with it as it was over water 3:40 into that flight. >> the french president spoke confirming it was damaged and
7:02 am
we have full team coverage live in paris and cairo and begin with our aviation correspondent david kerley in washington, good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, at this hour an air and sea search is under way for the wreckage but already there are several clues about this crash and whether it was an accident or an act of terrorism. the airbus a320 with 66 people on board including ten crew was on a late night flight to cairo leaving charles de gaulle airport at 11:09 local time. with only 20 minutes left in the four-hour flight, the pilot speaks to air traffic control saying all is fine. just three minutes later, the jet disappears from radar over the mediterranean northwest of cairo. the jet had been in egyptian airspace for ten minutes at an altitude of 37,000 feet. egyptair is reporting receiving an emergency signal possibly from one of the plane's emergency transmitters which are activated by water. grief-stricken family members
7:03 am
to get more information. according to egyptair, the pilot had more than 6,000 hours of flying time on the airbus a320. his co-pilot more than 2,000 hours. egypt, greece and france are coordinating search efforts now in the daylight hours. mari marinetraffic.com showing five freighters scrambling to what could be the crash zone. among the ten crew members three were reportedly security officials similar to u.s. air marshals which france's transport minister calls usual practice. so here's what we know at this point. this jet was in egyptian airspace at cruising altitude when it drops off radar with no distress call from the pilot. that suggests something sudden and don't forget, there were three air marshals on this flight. many questions still this morning but it appears officials do have a good idea where this wreckage is and it, the wreckage and black boxes will likely reveal whether this was an accident or act of terrorism. robin. >> all right, david, thank you.
7:04 am
took off from charles de gaulle airport in paris late last night heading for cairo and alex marquardt is there at the paris airport with the latest as the families of those missing gather. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right. this is terminal 1 at charles de gaulle airport where these passengers came before midnight to check into their flight. 56 of them, among them 15 french citizens and this morning their families desperately waiting for any news. the french government is taking care of those families in a nearby airport hotel in one of two crisis centers, the second investigating on the investigation that the french have launched. just a short time ago france's president hollande came out with a statement saying the information we have at this stage confirms this plane was damaged and lost. the french have offered help in this search. they have sent a plane to the mediterranean to join egyptian and greek assets. now after those two devastating terror attacks here in paris last year, security was beefed
7:05 am
the airport and, of course, the immediate fear is that this incident could be terror related, as well. back to you. >> okay, alex, now we turn to randa ali at the cairo airport. good morning, randa. what is the scene there right now? >> good morning. the scene is relatively calm except for the families of the passengers who come in and leave back and forth. the general sentiment is shock. they're all in shock and a lot of people are in tears. not interested in talking to the press except to tell them that my son was on that or my daughter was a flight attendant on this plane and that's the general sentiment, just shock from the families. >> we have avenue heard from the french president. what are we hearing from egyptian officials this morning? >> well, there is a press conference that's supposed to take place in 30 minutes with the minister of civil aviation. there has been
7:06 am
finding yet. i talked to egyptair earlier and they said there is no official -- there is no official statement yet out and yet they are not denying whether it has crashed or not. no official statement out yet. >> okay. >> just waiting for the press conference. >> we will keep an eye on that. randa ali, thanks very much. we turn to abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross. as we said nothing official now but authorities are looking into the possibility of a bomb on board and whether this could be a link to terrorism? >> that's right, robin. good morning, french authorities are already studying airport surveillance video at charles de gaulle airport operating on the theory at this point only a theory that a bomb was smuggled onto the plane. in the last several weeks aviation security officials have been warning of possible many bos hidden in laptop computers. terror groups in somalia have twice been linked to just such explosi explosives. in one case earlier this year on board a jetliner able to land safely. in another case, a laptop bomb that went off
7:07 am
the most recent suspected terror attack to bring down an aircraft involved a russian jet that blew up over the sinai desert in egypt killing 224 people. counterterror officials believe it was an inside job in which terrorists used back of the airport workers to smuggle an explosive device on board. >> even with the best of security screening machines, if you have an insider who is willing to place an explosive on a plane, you have a real problem. >> reporter: isis later took responsibility for downing the russian jet posting this photo of what it said was the bomb hidden in a beverage can with a simple detonator. >> close the switch and arm the timer to start its countdown. >> reporter: both isis and al qaeda have long targeted airplanes and airports. and the master al qaeda bomb maker remains at large despite repeated efforts to kill him. egypt and france have bothee
7:08 am
regularly targeted by a variety of terror groups and no shortage of candidates who might be responsible. terrorism is only a working theory, one that can be not confirmed until the plane's wreckage is located and tested for explosives. >> we heard in your report before inside job. how likely is it the case? >> great concern. back in december more than a dozen authorities -- dozen workers at airports in france lost their security clearance because of known ties to isisonline ties so it's a great concern that an inside job could take place that somebody working at the airport could smuggle the bomb on. >> how likely is the possibility this is terrorism gentleman. >> well, right now it's a theory but the working assumption. authorities have to operate on that assumption and right now they're try tock find anybody who was in proximity to the plane who had access to talk to them. >> searching over everything, thank you. >> let's dig in more with stephen ganyard and our consultant brad garrett former fbi special agent. steve, let me begin with you. asbr
7:09 am
could be an act of terror right now but let's go back to the plane and the possibility of a mechanical failure. it was a clear day. can you rule that out? >> yeah, you can never rule it out, george, until we're able to do the whole investigation but in this case we have very good data coming from the airplane that was being updated at one-second intervals at 37,000 feet and it disappeared. airplanes, airliners do not disappear and looking at the idea that something catastrophic occurred like a bomb. >> when you think of 37,000 feet over the water, not over land, is that too high for a surface-to-air missile or shoulder-fired missile? >> it is. remember, you and i have talked about when the shoulder-fired missiles have a limited altitude so we're concerned that terrorists have these kinds of surface-to-air missiles but only go up to about 20,000 feet. this would require something like a radar guided very sophisticated radar guided missile up to 37,000 and u.
7:10 am
probably have some sort of an electronic signature that would warn them and say, hey, somebody's been shooting this kind of missile. so far we aren't getting that guidance from u.s. intelligence officials. >> brad garrett, if the working theory is an inside job, perhaps a bomb on board what clues would agents be following now to get to the bottom of this? >> well, the real key, george, is going to be who had access to the plane because typically bombs that take down planes are in the cargo bay like lockerbie, scotland, pan am 103, so who had access to the plane? do they have video of the loading of the plane? but the real key is the background of the individuals working at the airport. as brian pointed out, there's a real issue in paris and france in general about extremists being involved in traditional jobs at airports and other locations, so that's where i'm going to be focusing in addition obviously to the passenger manifest. >> when you talk about that passenger manifest, given the facts as laid out by
7:11 am
can you rule out hijacking or is that a lesser theory? >> well, i suppose you could say that, george, but typically in hijacking, the hijacker wants attention, he's going to talk to the pilots, the flight crew, to get the cameras and the media attached to them. so i would say that's not probably likely based on the information we have. >> and, steve ganyard, we're just getting information from the greek defense minister who said the information he has is that the plane made some abrupt turns and lost altitude before going down. what does that tell you? >> well, first of all, george, we have to be careful here. if you remember back during the metrojet, the russian airliner brought down out of sharm el sheikh, the word we got out of the egyptians was never quite accurate and never got quite the right story. we have good data on the flight. no indication of any heading change, it just stopped flying at 37,000 feet. >> and i guess brad, as
7:12 am
they'll be looking for eyewants, any kind of eyewitnesses. some reports of people seeing a fireball but that's going to be key, as well. >> yeah, i think one of the things here that's important, normally we want to get to the black boxes but in this case because it was likely catastrophic what they'll want to do is get to the wreckage that's at the bottom of the mediterranean right now and look for witness marks that would have shown some type of an explosion so we really teed to get to the wreckage that's on the bottom of the mediterranean. >> and, brad garrett, if it does turn out this was some kind of a terrorist act and bomb that perhaps originated in france, it seems like france now the e epicenter, so much a target in the heart of europe right now. >> it is and it would make sense, george of isis or other groups to again use france as the victims even though the flight was obviously closer to egypt. so i think that's a very good working theory as to maybe what's going on here. >> one thing we have not seen yet, brian ross, any claim of responsibility. >> that's right.
7:13 am
generally it takes a day or two before terror groups will claim responsibility but they will want to claim responsibility if a terror group is responsible. >> brian ross, steve ganyard, brad garrett, thanks very much. the latest on airport security here at home. abc's mary bruce is at reagan national airport with more on that. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning. well, u.s. officials have been monitoring this situation closely overnight from the tsa to the faa and homeland security trying to glean any information. now, it's unclear at this point if they will change security measures at airports like this one, but it's not uncommon for officials to make adjustments even as they are investigating. now, all this comes, of course, as frustration is boiling over over these growing security lines at airports across the country. thousands of travelers are being delayed and missing flights and now all of those complaints have left-handed on capitol hill. frustrated flyers are hoping the administration and lawmakers can finally do something to address this problem. robin. >> mary, a lot of people heading to the airports this
7:14 am
how soon could this affect the growing security lines as you've just discussed? >> well, the tsa has not announced any changes just yet. but, robin, they are keeping a close eye on this ongoing investigation. >> all right, mary bruce, thank you. back to david kerley in washington covering this crisis with the tsa at airports all across the country and tobacco growing for weeks now and will get worse. >> it is going to get worse, george. this is something that tsa talked about, in fact, the homeland security secretary talked about it on friday. they said they're not going to skimp on safety or security. you know, we have an incident like this and reminds people of how safe and secure they want to be when they go to the airports but then when we get the lines because tsa changed some of the procedures not because of brussels or any other attack but because they failed some tests last year and get these lines because tsa says they don't have enough officers it's that balance. we want to stay safe and secure. none of us wants to spend three hours in line and that's the
7:15 am
the white house is saying congress should fully fund tsa, give them more officers which the tsa says they need because so many more of us are flying. but this is another reminder, another incident that's just going to cement that idea that these -- when we go through tsa, these security measures cannot be reduced or relaxed so that we can stay safe, guys. >> okay, david. >> thank you. going on to abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas now with more on how u.s. officials are responding to all of this. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. u.s. officials were alerted to this immediately last night. i was speaking to officials this morning. they are trying to get as much information as they can as quickly as they can because they know what happens overseas can have a direct impact inside the united states, again, the officials i spoke to have no clear indication of what this is or what this is not. but obviously they will be looking at security across the board and talking very closely to their french counterparts about what m
7:16 am
because, again, terrorism has been our primary concern for months now concerning aviation security and u.s. officials want to make sure they're on top of any developments, again, when this happened they were all over it last night, robin, george. >> all right. thank you, pierre and, of course, this is a very fluid situation and we will stay on top of this story. right now to amy with today's other top stories starting with a u.s. military jet crash. >> yeah, that's right. it's remarkable that no one was injured. you'll see why when you look. the air force bomber a b-52 aborted takeoff in guam and crashed but the seven crew members on board escaped in time. the air force is calling the incident a mishap. the bomber was deployed as part of the military's security presence in the pacific. meanwhile, the pentagon is investigating a close call between a u.s. navy plane and two chinese fighter jets. the american spy plane was flying over the south china sea when the chinese jets came within 100 feet of it. u.s. officials say the american pilot was actually forced to maneuver to avoid a

welcome back to "gma." you are looking at egypt's airport in cairo. that's where a passenger plane was supposed to planned this morning. it went missing over the mediterranean sea. three hours and 40 minutes into its flight, over egyptian airspace. families gathering at the airport looking for answers. >> we will get an update on all that in just a moment. also right now donald trump escalating that war of words with the clintons bringing up the former president's history with women and accusing him of rape. we'll have the latest on that in a moment. >> we'll get to that. but first the latest on that missing egyptair flight, abc's alex marquardt is live at paris' charles de gaulle airport with breaking new information. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, george. just a short time ago we heard from france's president francois hollande. he said that no hypothesis can be ruled out in this crash, at
7:31 am
to terrorism which paris is all too familiar with after those two massive attacks last year. just moments ago we got word that in light of the november 13th attacks, that the lower house of parliament here in france has extended the state of emergency. hollande also confirms that with regards to this flight that the plane was damaged and lost so the operating assumption is that it crashed. there is a sea and air search going on right now off the coast of egypt with assets from egypt, france and greece and we just heard from greece's defense ministry that tells us the egyptair pilot made a 90-degree turn to the left and then a 360-degree maneuver as he was losing altitude 20,000 feet in the air. he was last heard as he approached -- the plane was last heard from as it approached the egyptian coastline flying through clear skies ten miles inside egyptian airspace with 66 souls on board. most of them egypt
7:32 am
french, of course, the family members of all of those on board desperately waiting for news of their loved ones this morning. robin, george. >> all right, alex, thank you. the news about the maneuvering but we go back to abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross with more on the investigation right now. what are you continuing to hear, brian? >> well, good morning, robin and george. the information we have at this point is that the working theory is that somehow a bomb was smuggled on to the plane in paris. in the last several weeks, authorities say there have been warnings about laptop computers used to hide bombs. there are several examples of that in somalia. also officials are concerned about perhaps back of the airport workers being involved. last december dozens of airport workers at french airports lost their security clearances after it was determined they had been online sympathizers of isis. so there are several working theories, that's the assumption right now, authorities, robin, already beginning to screen tapes of what happened just before the plane took off to see who was around
7:33 am
>> looking at those tapes and everything they can get their hands on. >> more from stephen ganyard. steve, a little more information now on that greek defense men ve ve ministry's information. 90-degree turned and then a 360-degree. your caution that some of what they've said in the past turned out not to be true. assuming it is true what would that tell you. >> only deepens the mystery. doesn't make any sense. an airline pilot would not arbitrarily make turns. the greeks may be basinging that on their radar. at the edge of their coverage. we have solid gps data that doesn't suggest any turn like that a normal flight up until the moment it disappeared. >> suggests a sudden explosion if it was terrorism. >> it does. it does and so what they're going to do now, look for the wreckage and i'm kind of surprised we haven't found any yet but we have a
7:34 am
the heading it was on, how fast it was going so it's just a matter of extrapolating how far it might have fallen to get into the sea. after they do that they'll recover wreckage, remains then the real challenge is to get to the bottom of the mediterranean. find the wreckage itself and look for evidence of bomb on board of airplane. >> then you get to that possibility of a bomb right there. we know terrorists at paris and france has been under a state of emergency now for several months, the tightest possible security you would imagine. and just leads to the question how could someone possibly smuggle a bomb on board? >> well, it's probably not a person. it's probably a cargo -- something that was flown in the cargo hold. it doesn't get quite the same screening as people going through metal detectors and x-ray machines that would find a bomb so in this case as we saw in the sharm el sheikh, the russian airplane brought down it was an inside job where threw a bomb in the back of the cargo plane, cargo hold when nobody was looking and that's what brought down the airplane so i th

7:36 am
hannity names women who brought allegations against the former president. >> are they going to interview juanita broderick, paula jones and kathlyn willy and one case it's about exposure, in another case it's about groping and fondling and touching against a woman's will. >> and rape. >> and rape. should that -- >> big settlements. massive settlements. >> reporter: trump not done there. >> lost his law license, okay. couldn't practice law and you don't read about this on clinton. >> reporter: the clinton campaign firing back suggesting trump was attacking because he felt, quote, wounded saying after a week of still refusing to release his taxes and likening oakland and ferguson to the dangers in iraq, of course, he wants to change the subject. and the democrats dealing with their own created drama as bernie sanders stands his ground against critics who say he did not go far enough to denounce scenes like this. chaos in nevada. his supporters

herd and had to be euthanized. the man in trouble for trying to help the little calf has been identified as sahmus kazaam and was issued this for disturbing wildlife and told a wildlife officer he feared it would be roadkill and was staying clothe to his engine for warmth but the picture and resulting tragedy exploded on social media. even an online petition, justice for baby bison. yellowstone's own facebook page has 14,000 comments and counting. people outraged the bison was put down. park officials responding that they don't have the facilities to quarantine a young animal and check for disease or to care for a bison that can't fend for itself. it's illegal to interact with wildlife at yellowtone but that hasn't stopped visitors. some seriously injured in just the last year getting too close to take selfies of all

8:13 am
wasn't and is just the latest highly paid high-profile actress calling attention to an issue plaguing many working women in the country, the failure to earn equal pay for equal work. beneath clarp e underwood's icy stare and perfectly polished exterior -- >> i'm done trying to win over people's hearts. >> reporter: -- is a ruthless politician who stops at nothing to get what she wants. >> i am looking out for myself just like you are. >> reporter: now offscreen robin wright is doing just that, putting on her best poker face during contract negotiations with netflix demanding to be paid the same as her co-star kevin spacey. >> i was like, i want to be paid the same as kevin. >> reporter: wright speaking out at a rockefeller foundation and huffington post event tuesday night describing her shrewd negotiating tactic with the show's producers. >> i was looking at statistics and claire underwood's character was more popular than his and i was like you better pay me or i'm going
8:14 am
and they did. >> reporter: despite her reported $5.5 million salary, wright is now adding to the ongoing conversation both in and out of hollywood about gender pay gaps. >> it's a male dominant workplace society. it just -- it always has been. >> it started a year and half ago at the oscars when patricia arquette demanded equal pay for equal work and stalking about their salaries with each other. >> i'll do whatever it takes too but i will not let this go. >> reporter: netflix declined to comment on the matter but wright says it is a pandemic that needs to be changed. >> it's the push. it's how gentle and how forceful is that push but it has to be unacceptable at this stage. >> with elizabeth, tory johnson is our workplace contributor. going to have more on this discussion. i know you've done a lot on "20/20"? right. >> the outside people will say he's well compensated. she's a hollywood actress. who cares. >> exactly.
8:15 am
>> on its face we shouldn't care what richly paid hollywood actresses are paid however these women are very famous, honored at being at the top of their field and if they aren't getting paid ee quailly to their co-stars, it says something about the value of a woman's work and in this country right now 40% of american families have a woman as the primary or sole breadwinner. a huge issue for all working women not just the rich actresses. >> wonderful they know they have a platform and so they can speak for others, so, tory, what did robin wright do here that we should follow and could possibly use. >> i think there are three very specific -- calling them wright rules. the first is she did her research. so she discovered that and knew, quite frankly that her female role was equivalent to the male counterpart in terms of the importance to the story line. she knew often at times that her character's popularity eclipsed that of her male counterpart so when you are armed with those
8:16 am
beyond like i am woman pay me more. that just doesn't work. we have to understand why should we be paid more? what is it about our position and the value we bring to it? so you do your research. the next thee did right she used her voice and so often this is the hardest thing to do because we don't all have the confidence of a claire underwood so very often we hope, we pray that somebody will notice but hope is not a strategy when it comes to salary negotiation. we have to be willing to speak up and so if you are willing to speak up and ask for what you are worth there is a greater chance in getting it because we can't leave it up to employers to sort of correct pay disparities on their own. it often doesn't happen especially with smaller companies, we have to speak up and then the third thing she did where this is not necessarily a wright rule but it's what she did which was to make a threat and for most of us the threat of going public would fall on deaf ears. that wouldn't work so sometimes people say, you know, i'm going to leave if i don't get this raise. you have to be willing to carry that out. but if you speak up and the answer is no is i
8:17 am
should i recognize that this company will never pay me more or is it no not now and can i establish with my employer under what conditions would it take to make more money. >> there's different times that you speak up but especially when you enter the workforce because if you start at a lower pay scale than your male counterpart over your career you're going to be so much more behind. >> that gets to a little bit of what tory was saying about doing your homework. i did a profile on lilly ledbetter before the equal pay act was named after her. part of her issue where she was chronically underpaid was she didn't know. she was afraid to ask. and that's a problem right now. we consider it vulgar or in bad taste right now to talk about salaries unless you're donald trump boasting about what you're worth. for the most part people don't talk about it. so many women are too embarrassed to ask their male colleagues what are you earning that's considered in poor taste? somehow we have to get around that because unfortunately, we've seen through the
8:18 am
companies and male colleagues are using that ignorance of the salary wages around you to our disadvantage. >> we have to get past this, tory. >> absolutely. >> we think like nice girls don't talk about money. smart girls do and we have far too many bills and responsibilities and our own self-value and worth to not speak up. >> by the way, the wage gap, women lose on average in this country, $500 billion a year because they're underpaid. >> as you said, many of them are the main breadwinners for their families, 40%. okay, great discussion you two, thanks so much. lara. thank you so much. we'll turn now to a big phenomenon across tv. what's old is new again and better than ever. all kinds of the beloved shows from back in the day like "full house," "macgyver" has been rebooted and one of our favorites stands out for gaining new fans who are binge-watching old episodes. the "grey's anatomy" phenomenon. >> derek. >> derek. right, meredith.
8:19 am
>> reporter: 12 blockbuster seasons. >> we can be extraordinary together rather than ordinary apart. >> reporter: "grey's anatomy" still one of the hottest shows in prime time. >> i want to be married to you. >> has a huge ensemble of characters. viewers love these characters but also want to see if they're going to live. if they're going to die and who they will hook up with. >> go do your damn job. >> reporter: an unusual resurgence for such a long running series from the younger generation of fans who are binging on more than 200 older episodes on netflix and hulu to catch up on the story lines. more than 200 viewings a month watching just the pilot of "grey's." so many of them can't wait to see what happens to old favorites on tonight's season finale. >> big questions about the guy meredith is now with and who is getting married. and who's behind that door? >> where is she? >> oh, thank god. >> if they don't want to be here th then, they shouldn't
8:20 am
>> reporter: the stars weighing in already with us. >> i just want to take this opportunity to stay thank you to all the fans, it's my first season as a regular and it's been a tough season for ben. >> you are in for major surprises. thanks for having us, "gma." >> first question, joining me now is kate coyne from "people" magazine. what do you make of this rebooting, "macgyver" and "full house" and this love for, you know, "grey's anatomy" to the point where we're going back and watching old episodes? >> yeah, i think we have streaming to thank for that. i think it's thanks to the netflixs and hulus and on demand services of the world now, there's no excuse for like, well, i won't be able to. ka up or i won't know what happened. you can go back. you can go back, you can even actually cherry pick if you want to get caught up. just five or six episodes here or there that you know are pivotal moments and you'll be all caught up. >> are we caught up in nostalgia where we're trying to re-create
8:21 am
were they that good the first time around. >> i don't know if they were that good. "black-ish" did a tribute to "good times." >> it was hilarious. >> "good times" was a very, very good show. i don't know if it was the greatest show ever but just shows that there's nothing that you can't go back to now. there is nothing at all. >> back in those days we only had the three choices of network so we all watched those -- >> the three choices and those like -- that one time slot a week where if you weren't in front of your television set at 8:00 p.m. on a thursday you weren't seeing that episode. you missed it. >> so let's talk specifically about "grey's anatomy." this is a show that in past years has been on a bubble and now is the number one drama on thursday nights. >> yeah. >> so what is it about this show. >> i think one thing that paid off big time for them and it was a huge risk was killing off patrick dempsey's character. i know a lot of people thought, okay, that's the end of "grey's anatomy." but what it did instead it sort of rebooted the whole show and one of the
8:22 am
did was his character died not as the season iffinale. still one or two episodes after it so you tuned in to see what happened and you were sucked back in again and now the show has sort of creatively restarted everything. there are new characters on the canvas, new characters in meredith's orbit. >> it could have gone an entirely -- >> could have gone a whole other way. >> those who thought patrick dempsey with his death so dies the show. >> absolutely. and -- >> in fact, quite the opposite. >> i think what it showed was that the grey of "grey's anatomy," meredith grey is the central figure and has been all along. that's what shonda rhimes felt. this is about her journey and she's proved it this past season. >> love it. kate coyne, always great to have you. check out "people" magazine, the new issue on newsstands tomorrow and "grey's anatomy" season finale airs tonight at 8:007:00 central and word has it it's really good. outside to rob. >> great crowd out here. we have a birthday girl out here. what's your name? >> alyssa. >> happy birthday turning
8:23 am
how are you celebrating. >> a nice dinner and show. >> a glass of wine perhaps. >> hopefully. >> it's legal now. from san antonio, this is what's going on down across texas. flash flood watches and warnings happening. more rain there and that will be moving up towards the mid-atlantic as we later today. temperaytures in the upper 60s. tonight, partly to mostly clear. lows in the low 50s. tomorrow, sunshine to start with increasing clouds in the afternoon. a nice day with milder temps in the low to mid 70 >> we've got packers fans, seahawks fans. go, hawks. i thought you were reading a book. that's a camera. lara, back inside to you. >> thank you,
